He is one of the NBA's most prolific scorers and has been called the best shooting guard in the NBA, as well as one of the top overall players in the league. James Harden of Philadelphia has declined a $47 million extension with the 76ers and has opted to join free agency in search of a better situation. 

Place a bet on the upcoming season of 22/23 NBA season at any Michigan Online Casino like DraftKings, FanDuel and BetMGM.

Harden is doing this in order to make way for a new deal with Philly that would deliver the Sixers roster-building flexibility in free agency -- including use of the full $10.5 million exception.

"Obviously, we have to work with his representation and that'll be between us to figure out how that works," Morey added. "... He's an incredibly talented player just like Joel Embiid, just like Tobias Harris, and I'm excited for Doc Rivers and his staff to have a whole offseason, work with the players, and come up with the best plan for the roster."
